Primavera Italiana: the spring festival of Italian new music

Composer and contrabassist Stefano Scodanibbio is prominently linked to the renaissance of the double bass, with works written for him by composers such as Ferneyhough, Frith, Sciarrino and Xenakis. Today he is joined by sfSound for a concert of his works, including the Bay Area premieres of Mas lugares (on Monteverdis Madrigali) for String Quartet and Labore navigacionis for two pianos, along with other works. This concert is co-presented with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura of San Francisco.
